We’ve all heard the old saying “kids grow up in the blink of an eye”. One day they’re posing for ‘First Day of Kindergarten’ pictures and the next, we’re schlepping them off to university, worrying that we haven’t done enough. Fortunately, thanks to CIS’ STEAM programme, we can all breathe a huge sigh of relief knowing that our kids are ready for the future.
We recently spent the afternoon hanging out with the cool kids from Canadian International School (CIS) Lakeside Campus getting the lowdown on its STEAM programme and got to check out some sweet personal projects too. Watch how the students at CIS are benefitting from this innovative programme and how they use what they’ve learned to solve real world problems.
Take a peek at our video to see how Canadian International School’ STEAM programme encourages innovative thinking and learning.

It’s always full STEAM ahead at CIS!
At CIS, STEAM is more than simply using ipads and teaching science and robotics. Instead, it’s an interdisciplinary teaching approach that combines Science, Technology, Entrepreneurship, Arts and Math. Through this approach, kids are encouraged to be curious, creative, critical thinkers that work together collaboratively – skills that they need in the workplace!
At CIS, STEAM integration is offered as early as pre-kindergarten all the way through to Grade 12. From an early age, kids get to tinker around in awesome makerspaces using traditional equipment (think woodworking machinery and sewing machines) as well as cutting edge state-of-the-art equipment such as 3D printers, laser engravers and newspaper stixx rolling machines, all designed to encourage students to collaborate, experiment and invent!
But don’t just take our word for it. The best way to learn about the STEAM programme at CIS is to contact their Admissions team. Book a personal tour of one of their campuses to get a feel of this innovative programme.
